    Wow... check out some of the lots. Owning a piece of American Graffiti would be very cool....

    Lot 811, the Green Hornet's car. :)

    Lot 812, the original Bat Cycle. [​IMG]

    Lot 848, the Skyline from 2F2F [​IMG]

    Which is your favorite?

    Why don't you go to a custom shop? I bet you could take an Explorer in and have it done for less than $5000. (Just throwing that number out there, thinking of mods to the vehicle, added flash, and customized paint/art.)

    The Delorean only went for $35,000. I mean, that's still a lot, but I figured it would go for more than that.

    An orlando bloom mini bike went for a grand on some ebay auction benefiting the center for missing kids. They should have included cars from movies, that would have made it interesting.....but maybe a bit more pricey. Maybe they'll include a car on there before the auction ends.

    The car from xXx was sold at this years Barret Jackson auction here in Scottsdale for around $20K, I was quite surprised, it looked really nice.

    Wow, that's the way to fetch some money for charity right there. Throw in a car from a movie. There are some die hards out there, and just some plain rich people who will pay some money for things like that, and to help charity. Maybe the center for missing kids will ad that to their roster for next year.
